BEST LUXURY CANDLES

There are a few things that serve as a non-negotiable after our editors have had a long day in the office: A top-notch drop, a comfy pair of pyjamas, and burning a luxurious candle. Scent has long been known to help trigger our subconscious into relaxing, and according to Psychology Today, scents like lavender and jasmine are particularly effective in melting away the stress of the day just gone. So, we can only imagine the positive effect of burning a scent everyday as a trigger to remind our brains to switch off, and take a moment of respite.

If you’re on the hunt for a perfect candle, a quick search online will reveal that there are so many options to choose from. So, to help narrow it down for you, our editors have shared their go-to scents. See below for some of our sweet-smelling favourites below.

THE GRACE TALES | SEPTEMBER 2017

Almira Armstrong On Living A Graceful Life (And How To Relax)

One look at Sydney-based Almira Armstrong and the thinking behind skin care line philosophy's amazing grace collection comes to mind: "a little grace is all it takes to make each day more beautiful." Indeed, she knows a thing or two about how to live a graceful life (yes, it's possible even with two kids, Riaz, 5, and Alia, 2)...

It’s no wonder Armstrong is the chic founder of Lumira, a gorgeous line of candles and scents. “I have a candle burning throughout most of the day, and I really do like to mix this up based on the weather, my mood, where I’m working,” she says. In the morning as the sun rises, she’ll light the Lumira Sicilian Citrus. “It sets the tone for the day and really does infuse a bit of that paradise sensibility into your surroundings.”

We caught up with the busy creative mother of two to talk candles, beauty rituals, motherhood and more.
